Khopra Ridge Trek

Khopra Ridge Trek starts from Ghandruk, the typical Gurung village where you can interact with the local people and witness the traditional life of residents. The walk entertains you with the alpine pastures, meadows and rhododendron forests (in Spring) all the way leading to the less vegetation while reaching nearby the awaited Khopra Ridge. Along the trail, you will get a chance to witness the beautiful Kali Gandaki valley as well.

Finally, after a long walk, you will climb over the khopra ridge at 3,640m breathing a long and relaxing phew while enjoying the surprising view of snowy capped himalayas – Mt.Dhaulagiri (8167m), Mt.Annapurna (8091m), and Mt.Machhapuchhre (6997m). The trail continues towards an exploration hike to the holy Khayar Lake (4600m), the highest point of the trek, for the most remarkable views of peaks and fascinating landscapes.

Khopra Ridge Trek Itinerary

Upon arrival at Kathmandu airport, our rep from Himalayan Connection will pick you up, and take you to the hotel. In the evening, your trek leader will brief you about the trek. In the meantime, you will have to provide us with your documents for further processing of the permits.

(Hotel in Pokhara)
Leave your hotel in the morning for the bus to Pokhara. It’s about a 7 or 8-hour drive a tourist class bus and you will arrive in the late afternoon with time to make final preparations for the trek the following day. 

After Breakfast, take a private car to Nayapul. It takes about 1 and half hours to get there. We start our trekking from Nayapul. During the hike, we pass many local villages, teahouses, gentle green rolling hills, rivers, and local people. After crossing the Tikhedunga Khola on the suspension bridge, the trail begins to climb up quite steeply on a stone staircase that is more than 3200 steps. After climbing the hill we can see Mt. Annapurna south (7219m.) and Hiunchuli (6441m.). Nayapul to Ulleri (1960m, 4-5 hours walking)and then overnight at Lodge

It is a very pleasant part of the trek. We walk in the jungle most of the day. If you come in the spring you will see a lot of Rhododendron flowers. You have the chance to see many wild birds and animals. You can see a great view of many snow-capped mountains. Ulleri to Ghorepani(2874m, 5hour walking) and then overnight at Lodge.

We get up early in the morning with warm clothes and climb up to Poonhill(3210m.). it is not necessary to take much with us as we return later to collect our main rucksacks. It is about one hour walking to get to Poonhill (3210m). You will see the best sunrise and magnificent view of the Himalayas like Annapurna South, Bahari Shikhar, Hiuchuli, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri ranges, Tukuche peak, Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Lamjung Himal, Mt.Manaslu ranges, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and others mountains. After this unforgettable view, we come back to Ghorepani for breakfast. Trek to Ghandruk. The hike starts with quite a steep uphill section to Deurali pass. It is a similar elevation to Poonhill. We will see all the mountains from here as well. After that, we hike down to Tadapani. We continue to hike to Ghandruk through the Baisi Kharka (Buffalo pasture). Ghandruk is one of the biggest villages of Gurung people. There is the Gurung Culture Museum. We can go and see the way of life of the Gurung people. From this village, we can still see views of snow peaks. Ghorepani to Ghandruk (1939m, 6-7 hours walking) and then overnight at Lodge.

If it is a clear morning we may see Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre (fishtail) and Annapurna III very close. We have our breakfast with views. This day, we walk to Kimche from Ghandruk. It takes slowly 1 hours trek. From Kimche, we 3 hours drive back to Pokhara. Overnight at your hotel in Pokhara.

The six-hour drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu brings us back the way we originally came, ending again in a comfortable hotel. Your long trek is complete: it’s time for some rest! After an afternoon to nap and relax, we’ll meet up one last time for a celebratory dinner at one of the town’s finest Nepalese restaurants, where you can give us your feedback on the trek.

Every great journey must, unfortunately, come to an end. After breakfast at your hotel, there’ll be a last bit of time to return any rental equipment, pick up souvenirs, and grab your things. We’ll get you to the airport for your flight home with time to spare!
